Case Coffee Roasters

Peru La Esperanza

Peach butter, rosemary, berry cobbler.

Sweet, juicy pear, toffee, and Peruvian dark chocolate jump out of the cup, joined by peach butter, berry cobbler, and hints of rosemary and pepper. A classic Peruvian profile with sweet juicy acidity, this coffee is clean and complex and definitely special.

Meet Rosendo Cotrina Huaman

Finca La Esperanza (Farm of Hope) is the loved land of Rosendo Cotrina Huaman, a man passionate about producing exceptional coffee. He’s not content to just grow coffee, satisfying as that is. He’s also integrally involved in the movement in Peru to produce not just coffee, but coffee that deserves a high end specialty label.

On his 4 hectares, he produces about 200 quintales (100 lb bags) annually, hand harvested and meticulously processed on site. Rosendo’s yield has the honor of being listed as one of Olam Coffee Importer’s “Top Lot” coffees, a category made up of top-scoring coffees. Case Coffee Roasters says they tasted a lot of Peruvian coffees before finding this special micro-lot.

Cajamarca, Peru

High in the mists of the Northern Andes of Peru lies the Cajamarca region. Here the ancient Inca people ruled for centuries, and their descendants still possess gold, though not of the type which their last ruler, Atahualpa, once gave as his ransom. Coffees from here have been called “Cajamarca Gold.” The people are proud of their heritage and of their coffee, and work very hard to produce specialty quality beans.

Many towns in the Cajamarca region can be accessed only by gravel roads, which rains can render impassable. Electricity is not a given, nor is a telephone system readily available or reliable. Schooling and medical service, too, lags behind, but as coffee producers work with each other and their cooperatives, they are making improvements to
their lives and communities.

Case Coffee Roasters

At the ripe old age of 21, high school sweethearts Tim and Kati Case married in January, 2006, and promptly opened Case Coffee Roasters in Ashland, Oregon. Winners of the 2013 and 2015 Good Food Awards and a finalist in 2016, Tim and Kati’s mission is to source the world’s most sweet, clean, and complex coffees. They are dedicated to making great coffee selections and offering good prices to the farmers, often paying two to three times Fair Trade prices.

When they’re not living and breathing coffee, you might find Tim and Kati enjoying Little House on the Prairie and Gilmore Girls or exploring the Pacific Northwest with their six-year-old son, Yonnie: surfing, snowboarding, fly fishing, hiking, and mountain biking.
